The Tasty Crab restaurant, opening Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, at 706 S. Eldorado Road, Bloomington, will seat up to 120 people and feature Cajun-style boiled seafood and a sushi bar.

BLOOMINGTON — A new restaurant featuring seafood and sushi is opening up at the site of the former Lucky Garden in southeast Bloomington.

The Tasty Crab, at 706 S. Eldorado Road, will open on Wednesday, serving lunch and dinner seven days a week.

The restaurant will offer Cajun-style boiled seafood and a full-service bar, said proprietor Ming Zhuo.

"I think we will be the first one in Bloomington-Normal. Hopefully, people will like it," said Zhuo.

Sushi was a popular offering of Lucky Garden, so Zhuo said his restaurant will also feature a sushi bar. Lucky Garden closed about seven years after it opened in 2009 at the site that had been a China Buffet location.
